US calls for release of Kashmiri leaders held ‘without charge’

Srinagar : United States of America (US) on Saturday calls for release of Kashmiri political leaders held ‘without charge’.

The US urged India to release political leaders detained without charge in Jammu and Kashmir. Addressing a media briefing about her recently concluded three-nation visit, Alice Wells, principal deputy assistant secretary of state for South and Central Asian Affairs said, “On Jammu and Kashmir, I was pleased to see some incremental steps, including the partial return of internet services in Kashmir”.

She added “the visit by our ambassador and other foreign diplomats to J&K is something that I know was extensively covered in the press”.

“We also continue to urge the government to permit regular access by our diplomats, and to move swiftly to release those political leaders detained without charge”, Wells said.

Notably envoys of 15 countries including the US, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Maldives, Morocco, Fiji, Norway, Philippines, Argentina, visited the Valley earlier this month where they met several delegations and received first hand information about ground situation.
